I received a text message from Brandi this morning informing me that she had given birth to Lilly and that it was time for a photo session!  Brandi and Toby were really wanting to have some photos done while the family was at the hospital.  So I gathered up my gear and headed over to the Adventis Medical Center

The great thing about being a wedding photographer is that no two days are the same and that many of our clients consider us their photographer for a lifetime.  We have the opportunity to document the most incredible moments in peoples' lives and have the opportunity to develop relationships with couples that last for years and years.

Congratulations Brandi and Toby and thank you so much for the chance to hold your beautiful little girl!  You make my heart melt.

Baby Hunter was born on February 3, 2010 and entered the world at 21 inches long and weighing 9 lbs 9 oz.  He is such a darling and he really likes hearing the sound of the camera shutter.  He kept looking around trying to figure out the camera noises and especially liked seeing the flashes go off from time to time.  We got some smiles, some nap time, some awake time, some more nap time, and even more awake time -- the life of a little one!

Congratulations to Monica and Danny on their beautiful baby boy.

Our most recent family portrait session brought us out to the Pearl District for some urban style portraits.  I really love this part of the city and it is such a treat to use as a backdrop.  Bring the family into town and explore what this amazing city has to offer.  Here are some of our favorites from our session with The Seibel Family:

Thanks everyone for coming out to The Bridal Loft for this evening's Open House.  Crave Catering provided wonderful treats and Event Cosmetics offered mini-makeovers.  Charlotte's Bridal had some of the latest fashion trends on display and Eric with All Wright Music played continuous non-stop 80s music.  It was a great opportunity to showcase our new space at The Loft.  We want to thank all of the vendors for making this evening a success.

We headed to Cathedral Park for the Johnson family's portrait session.  Given the weather forecast, we wanted to find a location that would work whether there was rain or sunshine.  Here are a few favorites from the session:

Jennifer and I recently met up with Hailey for her 18 month photo session in the park.  She is quite the big girl these days being able to carry mom's purse all over the place.  She was so excited to explore and even managed to find some rain puddles!  The session was so much fun and we wanted to share a few of our favorites:

For those of you who do not know Petrel, she is one of the most spirited, upbeat vendors in the West.  She is the proud new owner of The Wedding Cottage.  You absolutely must visit her bridal boutique to see some of the most creative ways to personalize your wedding.
